Kuvan is a medicine that is used to treat people who are suffering from phenylketonuria (PKU). This is a genetic condition where the enzymes of the body do not function properly, making the body unable to break down phenylalanine and other amino acids that are found in food. This in turn causes the increase of phenylalanine in the blood.
